My Little Gators!

It's the best time of year... college football season! And just to make things even better I got a picture of all the kids in their Gator gear. This is the FIRST picture I've taken with of all three of them voluntarily sitting together looking at the camera!! HOORAY!!! :)

The month of August was a really great month for JD. He finished summer classes and had a week off (which I must say was a little rough) and then started back for fall. His preschool is amazing! He has a new teacher for the fall, her name is Miss April, and she's so wonderful. Each month I'm amazed at how much he learns and how easier his life gets.

A few big accomplishments to note...

1. He learned how to say "help" on his own!

2. He learned how to say and sign the words "please" and "more"

3. He's arranging items by color now at school!

4. And his vocabulary just keeps increasing because he will repeat words after saying them once, where it used to take weeks before he would repeat!

5. He'll give Ashley a HUG!

I think my favorite part of the day is when we go into his room right before bed time and work on his speech. He LOVES flashcards and we go through probably 50 a night. He loves to read and will now sit and listen - in the beginning he had no attention span for that.

It's just amazing at how far we've come in 6 months. I'm so proud of him and how hard he works for things that come so naturally for other kids his age. He's such a little hero to me!

Go JD! He has come so far.
